MOUNT VERNON–More than 400 Brewton-Parker alumni returned to the Mount Vernon campus last weekend for Alumni Weekend 2007, held March 23-24. With more than 10 special events planned on and around campus Friday and Saturday, alumni and their family and friends were kept busy—and all reported to have had a “wonderful time” renewing old acquaintances and meeting fellow alums from differing years.

The oldest returning alumnus was Mary Julia Whaley from the Class of 1937. The following pictures are just a few of the exciting and memorable moments of Alumni Weekend 2007. More information about BPC’s Athletic Hall of Fame inductees and the Alumni Society’s annual award winners will be available at a later date. (Photos by Kelley M. Arnold and Hayley M. Boisseau)
